Let’s use the Jar of Flowers for a masking technique to make clean and simple cards.
Masks are everywhere. It’s the sign of the times and these days wearing a mask has become as normal as wearing a pair of sunglasses.
Today we’re masking on our cards too. Don’t worry, it’s just a card technique. It is when we cover an area of our card where we don’t want any stamped image to go through.
The simplest mask is a narrow strip of paper. You need to stick it down firmly so that the ink doesn’t seep through. Post-it’s are ideal if you can find long ones.
Here is a list of materials I used:
- Jar of Flowers stamp set
- Peaceful Moments stamp set
- Bumblebee Classic Stampin’ Pad
- Basic White A4 Card Stock
- Clear-mount block D
- Stampin’ Seal
And here’s a video tutorial:
For fun, try masking diagonally or how about a different shape altogether? Try circles, star or even a heart mask using die cuts. Just make sure that the ink doesn’t seep through your mask because you’ll want a crisp outline each time to make it effective.
I hope that you enjoyed this inspiration and that you’ll also give it a go.
